To celebrate the Enterprise dinghy in its 60th anniversary year, the Enterprise Association organised a photo competition of Enterprise boats and sailors at clubs all over the UK and internationally. With entries from as far afield as India, the winning photo came from Penarth Yacht Club, in South Wales. The panoramic image shows the fleet of Enterprises rigged outside the historic and beautiful Penarth Yacht Club building, with the Severn estuary in the foreground.

Johnny Allen, who judged the images which were displayed at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show said; "We were delighted that the clubs took up the challenge to photograph their fleets and sailors. All the images will be used on the Enterprise website throughout this year, demonstrating the breadth and depth of this fleet and the many varied locations where Enterprises are sailed and raced."

The presentation of the prize to Penarth Yacht Club will take place at the Enterprise Inland Championships at Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club on Saturday 7th May. The fleet is celebrating its 60th anniversary with a Cocktail Party and Black Tie Dinner at the Inland Championships. Other anniversary celebrations include a Black Tie Dinner on the last night of the Enterprise National Championships at Brixham Yacht Club on Friday 29th July.
